[Lachlan M D] Wolfsangel()
"Savage, dark, strange and unpredictable." Joe Abercrombie "Genuinely strange, eerie, evocative. A classic." — Adam Roberts "A unique take on the werewolf mythos, on the Norse pantheon and on magic itself. An enthralling, mesmerising book." — Mike Carey "Superior thunderous and full-blooded historical fantasy, broiling and smoking with mystery, beautifully written." — Graham Joyce "A hardcore fantasy epic, mixing Norse saga with brutal violence, uncompromising action and an original take on the werewolf mythology. The intricate plotting had me hooked from the start, and the book ends on a bang that will leave you desperate for more!" — Andy Remic "A fresh take on the werewolf myth that savages your expectations at every turn. Brutal and relentlessly original." — Chris Wooding "Sent chills down my spine. Dark, bloody and dangerous, you can almost smell the sweat and iron coming off the pages. There are a lot of werewolves coming our way this year, but Wolfsangel could well be the standard by which they will be judged for some years to come." — Stephen Deas "A spellbinding and unputdownable fusion of historical and fantasy fiction that is sure to enchant devotees of both genres." — RJ Ellory MD Lachlan’s fantasy debut as all the essential elements of a rollicking historical fantasy: action aplenty, vivid description and strong characterisation. The most powerful and original fantasy I have read for some time." INTERZONE "The strength of Wolfsangel lies in Lachlan’s superlative storytelling skill. He evokes the frozen wastes of the Viking kings. We feel the biting cold, see the bleak wilderness, hear the myths of the Gods. Despite the oftentimes dark aspect of the novel, it is anchored by a warm heart and it is this that kept me reading long into the night. I can’t wait for the next in this series. M.D. Lachlan has penned a winner." — Fantasyliterature.com "Fantasy addicts will enjoy every page." TOTAL SCI FI "Wolfsangel truly has the epic and bloodthirsty feel of Norse saga. The tale walks on eerie ground: witches come to men between sleep and waking; gods exist in the place between living and dying; magic and reality intertwine. And this fascination with hinterlands suits the novel, since Wolfsangel itself is successfully poised between fantasy and historical fiction." WATERSONES BOOKS QUARTERLY
The Viking King Authun leads his men on a raid against an Anglo-Saxon village. Men and women are killed indiscriminately but Authun demands that no child be touched. He is acting on prophecy. A prophecy that tells him that the Saxons have stolen a child from the Gods. If Authun, in turn, takes the child and raises him as an heir, the child will lead his people to glory. But Authun discovers not one child, but twin baby boys. Ensuring that his faithful warriors, witness to what has happened, die during the raid Authun takes the children and their mother home, back to the witches who live on the troll wall. And he places his destiny in their hands. And so begins a stunning multi-volume fantasy epic that will take a werewolf from his beginnings as the heir to a brutal viking king, down through the ages. It is a journey that will see him hunt for his lost love through centuries and lives, and see the endless battle between the wolf, Odin and Loki – the eternal trickster – spill over into countless bloody conflicts from our history, and over into our lives. This is the myth of the werewolf as it has never been told before and marks the beginning of an extraordinary new fantasy series from Gollancz.
